Cape Town and Hermanus Self Drive Holiday

A 5* holiday option in some of the most stunning accommodation South Africa has to offer. Begin your time in incredible Cape Town in the fabulous One & Only resort hotel. Situated right on the world renowned V&A Waterfront and with some of the most fabulous restaurants on your doorstep, this is definitely a holiday for those who enjoy the finer things in the life. We particularly love this itinerary for its time in Grootbos, which during the months of June to November offers some of the most spectacular views of the Southern Right Whale across the bay. Grootbos is a luxury eco-reserve tucked between mountains, forest and sea offering breath taking views and activities such as bird watching, botanical tours, shark diving, hikes, horse riding, marine safaris and scenic flights.
